Kate Sampwrote a review of Patagonia Capilene Midweight Crew Top - Women's on February 24, 2017
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: Runs large
A midweight baselayer should fit almost next to skin for more adequate moisture management, and for temperature regulation. When I want to buy a midweight baselayer it is for colder temps, such as 40s at night. Generally, in these colder temps you would like to restrict air circulation around your body to maintain adequate core temperature. This baselayer fits loose, boxy, and the sleeves are too short for a 5'8" female with a skinny, athletic, build. I would not be able to fit this top into my current layering system due to its loose nature because the baselayer would bunch under my fleece. As a standalone shirt, this could be nice because bagginess might not matter so much to you. However, I would seriously question its ability to maintain your body's warmth.
